Have a look in Books Online regarding "String Functions". There's one there that does exactly what you want.

Select RIGHT('helloALL',3) will give 'ALL'.

you could try this, it's a bit crude but works...
declare @string varchar(50)
SET @string = 'ABCDEFGHIJ123'
select reverse ( substring ( reverse ( @string ) , 1 , 3 ) )

select substring(srcString, charindex(targetString, SrcString),len(srcString)-charindex(targetString, SrcString)+1)

This is a generic statement to be used in place of Right() where srcString is the main string and targetString is the string to be found from srcString.

Just for fun - if RIGHT and CHARINDEX is prohibited but you are allowed to use a Tally table :-D

DECLARE @txt VARCHAR(20)

SELECT @txt = 'helloALL'

SELECT
SUBSTRING(@txt, N, 1)
FROM Tally
WHERE N BETWEEN LEN(@txt) - 2 AND LEN(@txt)
FOR XML PATH('')

Hi,

I have a slightly similar problem
I hav a nvarchar field with no particular format of where spaces are

I want to split the string as below
<all chars-3> space <last 3 chars>
Eg: "ABCDEFG" should appear as "ABCD EFG"
"ABC DEFGH" should appear as "ABCDE FGH" etc

How can i do this using string functions. Pls help. Thanks

how about...

DECLARE @string VARCHAR(20)

SELECT @string = 'ABC DEFGH'
select @string = replace(@string,' ','')
select @string = substring ( @string, 1,(len(@string)-3)) + ' ' +
substring ( @string, (len(@string)-2),3 )
select @string
